My current position as manager at Fort Wayne Outfitters has revealed my passion for the Outdoor Industry and I have experienced the power quality products and services have on the public. Over the course of my nine years with the Outfitters, my job has evolved from sales associate to store manager. The position change allowed me to have a greater impact and through my dedication and energy we have become an event hub for the community. Getting outside and being active has a positive impact on us mentally and physically. Personally, my past was made up of athletics from synchronized swimming to collegiate softball. Currently, when I'm "getting outside" I'm paddling, running, hiking, or cycling. My goal is to help others do the same, whether it's participating in their first Margarita Monday Paddle Social or finding the right boot for their next hike.
